Planted in 2009 as one of 15 trees to establish the Dumont Shade Tree Arboretum. A Small Tree which matures at under 25′, smaller than the flagpole or a house.
Silverbell, Halesia carolina, is ornamental throughout the year with strings of bell flowers in spring, maturing to green pods in summer then crisp golden pods in autumn.
This tough little tree will grow slowly to under 25′ tall, and is great for planting under wires or in tight spaces, and especially lovely as a lawn tree near a deck or patio.
Look for our Silverbell near the Arboretum Flag Pole.
